After a fine and warm weekend across much of the country, temperatures today have reached 80 degrees Fahrenheit in Bridlington in East Yorkshire for the first time this summer - although similar values were reached in places for a time during late May.
It's certainly come as a welcome relief after a what's been a dreadful summer so far, which, according to Philip Eden writing for weather online, has been the worst first half of summer on record (summer for climatological reasons is June, July and August).
But in typical British fashion it looks like the summery conditions will prove to be short lived, with much of the country by the end of the week again under the influence of low pressure, bringing cooler and unsettled conditions, as the jet stream once more heads south.
For our region, wednesday will be the transition day, with more cloud in general and possibly the odd light shower. After that the more unsettled conditions will slowly take hold from the north.
And with the jet stream likely to remain further south than normal as we head into early August, unsettled & cool weather will once again dominate our weather.
